Can't a superheroine catch a break? Chloe Cole wants to cosplay in her Temporary Superheroine uniform at the Chicago comicon, but when the evil Mistress Miraculous threatens massive disaster, Chloe has to step up and fight. She's the only one who can control the Dimensional Diamond and save the comicon.
Chloe flings herself into superheroine mode yet again in another comic book style adventure featuring mysterious superpowers, fast action, and a long list of suspects with grudges against a comic book company celebrating its 75th anniversary. This was supposed to be a fun weekend, but there's far too much drama—especially in Chloe's personal relationships.
